Solium Capital and Westport Fuel Systems can add profound upside to your portfolio. This is because the optimistic growth outlook for their profitability and returns make their high-growth potential appealing relative to their peers. Analysing the most recent financial data, I’ve created a list of companies that compare favourably in all criteria, making them potentially good additions to your portfolio.

Solium Capital Inc. (TSX:SUM)

Solium Capital Inc. provides cloud-enabled services for administration, financial reporting, and compliance related to equity-based incentive plans. Started in 1999, and currently headed by CEO Marcos Lopez, the company employs 611 people and with the company’s market cap sitting at CAD CA$622.91M, it falls under the small-cap stocks category.

SUM’s projected future profit growth is an exceptional 52.85%, with an underlying 40.09% growth from its revenues expected over the upcoming years. An affirming signal is when net income increase also comes with top-line growth. Even though some cost-reduction initiatives may have also pushed up margins, in the case of SUM, it does not appear extreme. Moreover, the 55.13% growth in operating cash flows shows that a decent part of earnings is driven by robust cash generation from operational activities, not one-off or non-core activities. SUM’s impressive outlook on all aspects makes it a worthy company to spend more time to understand. Should you add SUM to your portfolio?
